This cub Simba plush I got from Holland. This was purchased in August 2012 in Rotterdam from a classifieds site. I have a very special friend in the Netherlands who is very kind. On several occasions he has gone and picked up animals for me or driven me around all over the place to hunt down plushies
The tags say it was imported by Merison Retail B.V. of Bunschoen, the Netherlands. This plush was sold in the Netherlands back around 2003. I have only seen this plush in Holland and no other country, so I am assuming it was specific to Holland. I have no idea what company actually made it as it was a private label for Merison. This cub Simba is 15" tall, 7" wide, 10" long excluding tail and was made in China. One thing that is unusual about this plush is the washing instructions. Most stuffed animals specifically say to surface wash and air dry only, while this one says you can throw in the washing machine and dryer on low heat.
There is also a Mufasa plush that was made by this company and sold in the Netherlands alongside this one.
